I met this fabulous girl back in my first year of teaching. I taught Kindergarten through 8th grade art in Norton KS. And OMG...nothing could have prepared me for the nightmare that is junior high. Kristin was quite the exception...she was in one of my wildest 7th grade classes I had...the last hour of the day! Only later did I discover that the ornery ones would take naps all afternoon until they got to my class....and then, jackpot! HA! Through it all I could see Kristin was such a talented artist! She enjoyed art much more then everyone else in that class...and boy it showed! She was also such a sweetieheart always trying to help me calm down the boys. But if you have ever been in the presence of the typical junior high boy...you know there is little you can do to save yourself.
Can't believe my talented kid, Kristin, is now a senior!! I have really missed having her in class and watching her grow as a person and artist. You probably couldn't tell from looking at her pictures but this girl is shy, but she has no reason to be! Kristin is always giggling and making my job such a fun and easy one. I love her and she is perfect.
